How to address the Medication Synchronization Task in workflow.

The Medication Synchronization Task is a great tool intended to help pharmacists quickly identify opportunities to activities to coordinate and synchronize chronic medication fill dates in efforts to improve medication adherence. This task is generated for patients with two or more active medications for chronic conditions for which they are also non-adherent.

To begin the task, select "Start". In the widow that opens, you will see a list of the patient's active medications and corresponding fill dates. Once you complete the med sync calculations, check off the appropriate interventions.

You can also jot down notes or indicate any related items from other sections of the profile as needed, like conditions or drug therapy problems.

Once you've captured all the pertinent details, click "Continue" to automatically generate applicable documents (like eCare Plans for CPESN member pharmacies), or click "Save and Close" if you want to pause your work and come back to it later.

As always, DocStation relies on the pharmacist's knowledge of the patient when it comes to relevancy of tasks, so if a task is not relevant to the patient, or if the patient refuses the consultation, or something else comes up that prevents you from completing the task, you can archive it instead. Select the (...) icon on the right side of the task card, then select "Archive" and choose the most applicable reason. Then select "Archive Task". If you've already started the task but decide to archive it instead, select the same (...) menu and select "Archive".
